September 20, 2017 GMT

The Texas Department of Transportation will host a Car Seat Checkup Event from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday at its Brownsville location.

Car seats will be checked by a certified child passenger safety technician. Officials said the car seats may be replaced if the seat has been recalled or fails to meet certain criteria.

Parents need to bring their children to the car seat safety check and should know their child’s weight and height.

TXDOT’s office in Brownsville is located at 1375 Military Highway.
